The owners of this property live in another state and plan to use this Coastal Cottage as their home away from home. Because they live out of state they have entrusted me to manage the bookings for them.

JUNE WINDMULLER purchased this house in 2015

Why JUNE WINDMULLER chose Newport Beach

Great location, beautifully renovated, cottage by the beach. Perfect for a young family with kids. This home is a very short walk to the beach and boardwalk as it is only one block from the beach. The home easily sleeps 6 people, depending on sleeping arrangements, and is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, bike and surf board rental companies, and the grocery store. More importantly, I live here in Newport Beach and promise to provide you with a personal touch and a very positive experience.

What makes this house unique

Location - Location - Location. Although not on the beach, being one block away and in the heart of the peninsula, this property is conveniently located near everything you want or need.

Newport Beach is also close to day trips such as Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, or Hollywood.

Wonderful, Very Clean, Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is one of the nicest vacation homes I've ever stayed at. It really had every amenity you could think of. You can tell the owner put time and thought into making our stay comfortable. It was so convenient and close to the beach, 2 block walk. Grocery store and restaurants were also very close. My two young boys loved the bunk bed, the loft, all the toys, and felt very much at home. I would stay again and have recommended this place many times to my friends looking for a nice beach getaway.

Property was accurately depicted in the pictures! Just what we wanted and expected!

  • 5 of 5

This property met all of our expectations. One block from the beach was perfect! Easy to walk to the beach and all the restaurants/shops, but gave us a little more privacy than staying right on the boardwalk. Very convenient location to get onto the highways/interstates to get to all the major tourist attractions. The home itself is very nicely finished, with plenty of "beach supplies" available for our entire family. June (property manager) was readily available for any questions we had prior to the trip, and while we were there. Our family had a great time, and would highly recommend this home for your stay. If we vacation in this area again we will definitely stay at this property!

Nicest Beach Rental We've Had

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate giving the Cool Beach Rental the positive feedback it deserves as I don't want to compete against other renters...but I couldn't do that to June (manager) or the owners who deserve it!

There really wasn't anything missing for a perfect beach vacation. They've thought of everything. Pair that with a recently remodeled house that has an extremely clean look and you have a perfect vacation in store!

Some highlights: It's a cooks kitchen with all the devices you need. The Nespresso was great in the morning. They even had some spices and other kitchen consumables that we ended up needing but didn't have to go to the store for. The bathroom and shower is impeccably clean with high end fixtures. The washer dryer was brand new, too. As we live in a mild climate and it was quite hot and unseasonably humid, the AC came in handy in the afternoon. We didn't need it at night, however. Balboa peninsula is very busy but we didn't find the surrounding area loud or unruly.

The loft would be great for older kids/teens although ours were too small and preferred the bunk beds. Street parking was easy although they provided a garage space.

The patio furniture was high end and study and the gas grill in great condition. We enjoyed a memorable meal outside and had pleasant interactions with June/Brian next door who also manage the property.

The beach at 28/29th is really nice. Close enough to walk to the pier but not overly packed. Highlights of the trip: We enjoyed breakfast/lunch at Sessions as well as Dory Deli. We rented bikes from 20th St Beach and Bikes who were helpful and friendly. Mainly the BEACH was the highlight. Perfect late summer weather and a great trip. We WILL be back!
